Great Finish

I got the Braun Silk-epil a couple of weeks ago, first day I got it I was so excited I ripped it open and immediately rolled up my jeans and tried it on my leg.OUCH---- I have to be honest I felt each and every individual follicle being plucked. Granted I should have expected that ....but it was a shock. Regardless I wanted to power thru so I kept at it and I am so glad I did. A few more tries and I adjusted to the stinging. Please note that it took me a while to use it on my armpits (the sensation is much more there) but the results are amazing :)NOW I absolutely love it.

No pain no gain

I was very excited when i recieved the product in the mail. I opened it and tried it right away. It was painful but i became accustomed to the sting fairly quickly. 8 days later and my legs are still stubble free. I have had to touch up a few spots i missed but it was very quick to do it. I love the fact that it is portable and i could sit and do it while watching tv. I definitely look forward to the ease and simplicity of using this form of hair removal during the coming summer months. Finding time to shave isn't the easiest thing to do with a very active toddler and full time job. I have already had my sister and few friends borrow it and they plan to purchase 1 soon.

Put Down the Razor

If you have an hour and some patience, learning to use the Silk-épil is worth it. I had tried an epilator years ago, and it was not a great experience — it hurt terribly. But, this tool is much more gentle and a huge improvement over others on the marketing. There is a learning curve, but it's not hard to get the hang of (and think of all the time you'll save not shaving).A few things I learned along the way:• Yes, it pinches a little, but it's very minor and can be minimized by pulling the skin taut. And, the epilator has two speeds — and the low setting is perfect for learning how the tool works.• Moisturizing is important! Your legs might get a little red afterwards (mine did), but a rich lotion and a few hours will fix that.• In general, I had smooth skin for about two weeks. There were a few patches I missed the first time, but it's quick and easy to do a touch up.Overall, it's a handy tool, and I'm glad to have it my beauty toolkit.

Best epilator ever used

I have been using epilators for a few years now. I have tried about 2 brands of epilators. I couldn't wait to try this one. When I opened it I noticed it was light weight & easy to maneuver, upon trying it. It grabs even the smallest hairs. It's faster & easier than traditional shaving.

BrAun silk shaver

I think the Silk shaver was alright. This shaver was very harsh on you skin and pinched you skin a lot. I would reccomend this shaver to users who have more hair to shave them just some prickley legs because with prickley legs you will get pinched by the shaver. I did have my friend try it out too and it was the same thing with her. I honestly didn't like this product, but it might be different for others. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Not too shabby...

This is a pretty good product. So far I've only used it for my underarms and it worked pretty well. I was pretty impressed at how even the shortest hairs that I thought would be too short we're able to be pulled out. There were some hairs though that were, I guess, right at or under the surface and they didn't come out so I still had a little shadow on so e parts. This was a bummer considering this is a semi painful process! I was hoping to be totally smooth and shadow free! I should've listened to the directions and done it at night because my armpits were very red and sore for the rest of the day!! So definitely do it at night!! I will keep using it though. I know over time I will become less sensitive to it. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

I love it!

I adore this epilator it keeps my legs looking hairless for weeks! The light on the epilator makes it super easy to know if you need to go over a spot again. I like that i can use this in the shower because it seems to hurt a lot less then using it dry. The only problem i had was this weird stubble after using it. However overall this was an awesome product. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Smoothest skin!

As an esthetician, if I'm not shaving, I'm usually waxing. I love waxing because of the long lasting results but this gives the same results quicker and will less mess and expense. I received this through the bzzagent campaign and was thrilled with the product before even using. The packaging is fantastic and the actual product feels sturdy and is very well made. If you've never waxed or used an epilator, it takes some getting used to because you are ripping your hair out from the root but you will notice that you can go about a month before the hair grows back and over time, the hair will grow back slower and thinner. Overall, great product and I would definitely recommend this to anyone seeking an alternative to shaving. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

My FASTEST and Longest Smooth ever

I did a test on the underarm area and did one arm with the Silk-epil 9. WOW what a HUGE difference! The arm I used a regular razor on was not nearly as smooth. and of course already has regrowth. The Silk-epil9 was so easy and FAST to use - the wide smooth head made the process fast and easy. I think the wider head and addition of the available cover changes make this the best epilator I have ever used. I used it dry this time but plan to test my legs both wet and dry later this week. The discomfort was about the same as if I was waxing accept even better there was no pulling on my skin. So I had no skin irritation. Over all for me this is a win win and I highly recommend this to anyone. I was given this product to test for BzzAgent. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]
